A local non-profit 501 3c “health” organization is soliciting funds to help with the defense of an illegal alien picked up by ICE. In my research for an article I realized it is not just political correctness that keeps the ire of taxpayers in-check, but it’s also deceptive terminology that keeps people in the dark. Rather than labeling people as illegal and undocumented, this health organization describes their clients as underserved. Luke, in his account of the early church, has a better example of what it means to be underserved. The Apostles learned that the Grecian Jews (widows) were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. “So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:2-4 NIV).
